I have a 01 RS and was messing around
with my throttle cables one day. It
now feels like my car is a tad slower.
Is this true or is it all in my head.
Oh and is my car SOHC or DOHC???:confused:
Also how do you go about your ECU for
more power, new one, or can you upgrade
the stock one?? As you can tell I know
little about technical stuff-thanx

i dont know why you were messing with your throttle cable, i hope you were not adjusting your idle... cause you could have screwed your self if you have.

Your car is SOHC (unless u got a jspec engine)- i think this was in a manual.
the easiest power upgrade is intake(~100$), then then exhaust or chip for ecu (get a power chip or Torque chip II, i have one and i'm happy, it's a piggy back for your ecu (200$)
